    We can expect to see a lot of news coming from there and this is the thread to keep the discussion more central.

    Here is some background information about the whole situation.

    Sunnis and Shia Muslims

    Sunni and Shia Islam are the two major denominations of Islam. They are spread out all over the world and 87 – 89% of Muslims are Sunni and approximately 11-12% are Shia. Their beliefs differ in a couple of areas and there have been conflicts dating back several centuries between both groups. In recent years the conflicts were mostly in Pakistan and Iraq.

    Iraq has about 65% of Shia Arab Muslims and 32% of Sunnis. Saddam Hussein was a Sunni and oppressed the Shia and basically made them second class citizen.

    ISIS – Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (former ISIL – Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant)

    ISIS is a Sunni milita group that is even too extreme for al-Quaida. They have fought within Iraq right after the US invasion and moved their operations to Syria in recent years.

    “Al-Qaida announces it is not linked to … [ISIS], as it was not informed of its creation [and] did not accept it,” the statement said. ISIS “is not a branch of al-Qaida, has no links to it, and the [al-Qaida] group is not responsible for its acts.”

    They have plenty of videos online that “promote what they do”. Beheadings, shootings and all sorts of murder and mayhem. Here is a 1 hour high definition video ISIS created to promote how brave they are. You should not watch this if you have problems seeing people (including teenager and kids) getting killed in various ways.

    ISIS in Iraq

    Now ISIS has invaded Iraq and is marching towards Baghdad.

    Here is some coverage of the situation by different news stations:

    This will continue to grow… I predict this will very soon be very, very bad news for Israel.

    Israel is ready. First they will let them kill each other and then they will watch them to see what is there next step.

    I believe that if we have another world war that it will start in the middle east.

    So it looks like the Shiite are joining the security forces to fight the Al Qaeda militants.

    Thousands of Iraqis answer call to join fight against militants.

    With the 425 million USD they got from taking Mosul this is probably just the beginning of a shopping spree…

    Increased preparations in Israel.

    Israel Will Go to War as Islamic Fascism Spreads

    “chief of the Israeli Defense Forces, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz cryptically remarked that the IDF is gearing up to address the growing numbers of terrorist forces on its border with Syria. He noted Iraq as well for good measure”

    Things are going just too fast there.
    That ISIS militia have just lot of success there, OK of course reasons are too in fact that other side is not so organized, not able to organize anything big without outside help.

    But there are logic in those ISIL horrible killings and executions. It is sick logic but it works.

    From my personal experience, when your first neighbor (or your fellow soldier or similar) says “they coming, and they killing every man, raping women, and torch everything!” fear can be overwhelming and you just forget everything else.
    Reasons, logic, courage, high words, everything goes away when horror coming.

    It just work.

    It my sound wrong, but good way of dealing with that kind of folks is raising other horror against them by using quick and swift justice, without too much talking. Just destroying.

    Yes it looks like more countries will get involved. Gas prices may go way up, that means food prices will go up too!

    A Turkey vs Iran war is very bad. Turkey is a NATO Alliance member. It will draw EVERYONE into the war.
